Notion's affordable and easy-to-install smart home monitoring system packs multiple capabilities into a single sensor, allowing property owners to monitor all aspects of their space, including activities that could lead to costly insurance claims. Now, property owners can add on NotionPRO through the Notion app and have their sensors' activities, from motion to water leaks to sounding alarms, be professionally monitored by certified dispatchers. Designed with flexibility in mind, the app allows users to easily turn on and off what Notion sensors they want armed with NotionPRO with a tap of a button. At only $15/month, NotionPRO expands the protection of a property without the need of professional installation or a service contract. Plus, NotionPRO users have the potential opportunity to claim two discounts with their insurance providers, one for Notion's smart home technology and one for the home security service.

Syndio Unveils New Small Group Analysis Feature on Pay Equity Platform

Syndio, an HR analytics platform with a mission to eradicate pay disparities, announced today that the Company has launched a new small group analysis feature as part of its best-in-class pay equity technology platform, PayEQ. The feature allows companies to analyze small groups of employees that perform similar work and resolve potential pay gaps identified that are not explainable by job-related criteria. PayEQ empowers organizations to analyze and resolve pay disparities due to gender, race or any other categorization and monitors compliance over time.

"Small group analysis is not a capability just for small companies," said Maria Colacurcio, CEO, Syndio. "Organizations of all sizes have groups of employees doing substantially similar work that are small – too small for multivariate regression – and require the application of controls, which you cannot perform with basic pay equity technology."

GM will help Chevy EV owners find certified home charger installers

It hopes doing so will convince more consumers to buy its electric vehicles.

General Motors wants to make it easier for Chevy EV-owners to charge their vehicles at home. Customers can now visit the Charging Page and search for certified charger installers. They'll be able to fill in details about their home, compare quotes and contact an installer from the page. Chevy hopes the new feature (the result of a partnership with Qmerit) will convince more people to buy EVs.

According to the company, the perceived difficulty of installing an at-home charging station prevents some consumers from taking the plunge. "We're excited that our Chevrolet Bolt EV owners can now enjoy the ease and accessibility of at-home charging," said Kelly Helfrich, manager of GM's EV infrastructure. "This is an important step forward on our journey toward a world with zero emissions." It could also be a helpful sales incentive when GM's EV tax credit runs dry sometime next year.
